I didn't see a GDT up yet.









Finally, a team we should beat!

What? I still want to discuss the game even if Loffen hasn't made the official GDT yet!

The Canes board hasn't posted a GDT yet, so I don't have the lineup, but this is what they posted for their last game.

Tlusty-Rask-Lindholm
Gerbe-Nash-Semin
Malone-McClement-Brown
Boychuk-Terry

Sekera-Faulk
Harrison-Murphy
Liles-Gleason
Hainsey

Ward
Khudobin

That lineup is brutal.

Notes: Sekera left their last game injured in the 1st period, and I'm unsure if he's out for this game. They actually played 7D that game too, so maybe their D stays as is and they call up a F to complete the 4th line? I have no idea.

I hate the term "must win" especially in October but it would be a REAL disappointment if they didn't snag 2 points tonight.

Entire team must focus on making sound decisions in their own end. If this team is going to make noise they need to clean up the goals against.

You can also use the "pre-game talk" thread tag and that is acceptable.

So is it a must win or not? I'm trying to gauge the appropriate amount of anxiety to muster up for the rest of the day.

I would say it's a must win, looking at that lineup.

We're playing, quite literally, the worst team in the league, at home.

Anything less than 2 points tonight would be a huge disappointment.

Err... Pre game talk for now. Sometimes Loffen doesn't get them up until mid day. If not then this will be the GDT I guess.

In my book, not a must win. Feel free to leave the anxiety at normal HF levels (somewhere around a moderate panic) but due to it being a "should win" be prepared to amp up typical HF post game rage in the PGT.

Oh it is absolutely a must win... for people to remain sane. I fear that a loss to the undisputed 2nd worst team in the NHL would send these boards into a spiral that would make last years bad time look like the happiest time ever on HF.

Would not be a fun evening to be a mod that's for sure.

I really wish we just called up Allen and left Klein with Moore on the bottom pairing. As well as readjusting the lines so that Stepan can move right in once he returns.

Kreider - Hayes - Nash
Duclair - Brassard - St. Louis
Hagelin - ??(Lindberg?Mueller?) - Zucarrello
Malone - Moore - Fast
Glass


Then when Stepan comes back

Kreider - Stepan - Nash
Duclair - Brassard - St. Louis
Hagelin - Hayes - Zucarrello
Malone - Moore - Fast
Glass

Probably not a "MUST win," but there has to be some glimmer of hope if we lose today, and definitely cannot be blown out. Again. To arguably the worst team in the NHL.

Any team that loses players filling the aforementioned roles is going to struggle. Having key players injured is not a "letdown," it's bad luck.
I agree. It's like Chicago losing Toews and Keith, then replacing them with players like Hayes and Hunwick...
just imagine what a crapshoot they would become. NO TEAM can sustain performance with those kind of injuries...

Moreso,to START the season with those injuries makes it even tougher... if it's 1-3 months in, usually a call up player (who has been playing minutes in the AHL) can be slotted into the spot required, and while a hit is still taken, it's somewhat mitigated since the REST of the team is in a groove

You can apply this to ANY team in the league:
Boston loses Bergeron and Chara/Seidenberg
LA loses Kopitar and Doughty/Voynov
San Jose loses Thornton and Vlasic

Pittsburgh is the exception, but that's mostly because Malkin is a #1 Center on just about every other team in the NHL...

Honestly wouldn't feel this is a "must-win" even if we weren't decimated by injuries.

would be nice to steal a win tho.
